Prep and roast potatoes

Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F and wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 5 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium and 1/2 tsp spicy! Cut potatoes into 1/2-inch pieces. Add potatoes and 1 tbsp oil to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Season with salt and pepper, then toss to combine. Roast in the middle of the oven, tossing halfway through, until golden-brown, 24-26 min. (NOTE: For 4 ppl, use 2 parchment-lined baking sheets, using 1 tbsp oil per sheet. Bake in the top and the middle of the oven, rotating sheets halfway through.)


While potatoes roast, core, then cut pepper into 1/2-inch pieces. Juice half the lemon (whole lemon for 4 ppl). Cut any remaining lemon into wedges.

Cook peppers

Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then peppers. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan from the heat, then transfer peppers to a plate.

Cook chicken

Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with half the Italian Seasoning. Heat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then chicken. Pan-fry until chicken is golden-brown, 1-2 min per side. Transfer to the baking sheet with potatoes. Bake in the middle of the oven until chicken is cooked through, 10-12 min.** Carefully wipe the pan clean.

Make sauce

While chicken bakes, reheat the same pan over medium. When hot, add 1 tbsp butter (dbl for 4 ppl), then onions. Cook, stirring often, until softened, 3-4 min. Stir in garlic puree, then sprinkle flour and remaining Italian Seasoning over top. Cook, stirring often, until onions are coated, 1 min. Add 3/4 cup water (dbl for 4 ppl) and broth concentrate. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until thickened, 2-4 min. Stir in cooked peppers, lemon juice and 1/8 tsp chili flakes. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Season with salt and pepper.

Finish and serve

Thinly slice chicken. Divide roasted potatoes and chicken between plates. Spoon sauce and veggies over chicken. Squeeze over a lemon wedge, if desired.
